christie right before the election. however, here in the united states, there's still a large contingent of climate change doubters. what do you say to that part of the u.s. to persuade them that limate change is real? >> well, my simple advice is take a look again at the picture of president obama and governor christie. according to the ground rules of u.s. presidential campaigns, such an embrace three days before election day was an absolute taboo. and talk to the people in new jersey or new york that had their homes destroy,ir commundestd, due to the extreme weather events. look at the reports on china in january and february. one example, just to give you a visual image, is the melting of the arctic sea ice in my part of the world, the consequence that 180,000 caffles froze to death out in the field in china. so whether we call it climate change or not, i mean, that is a political concept which i know has positive or negative connotations, but the ice melting is a reality. and the consequences of the ice melting in my part of the world is extreme weathers in the united states and in

committee, the ranking democrat now since someone has announced he's not going to run for re-election in 2014. that gives him pretty much a free hand to try to fashion some kind of tax reform if he wants to do it in cooperation with the ranking republican on that committee. i think that it is within the realm of possibility that these two could do that. dave camp, the republican chairman of the house weighs and means committee has been working on the tax reform. we've seen on immigration, the president is leading from behind. he's the opposite of l.b.j. who insisted that congress pass his law without changing a comma. president obama doesn't have much in the way of recommendations. so it's possible, i think, not likely but possible that we could see serious moves towards tax reform. dagen: keep hope alive. good to see you. thank you so much. be well. >> nice to see you. connell: there's a lot of talk in new york city today about the potential plan to raise the smoking age. the proposal would raise the age from 18 to 21. it wouldn't ban or they wouldn't prosecute people under 21 from s

in boston. we just had a knife attack that maimed 14 people in texas. people were paid and elected on capitol hill talking about gun-control that will do nothing to stem any of this violence. that makes me angry. lou: extraordinarily to my those legislators, everyone to whom the question has been put acknowledges that the universal background check, for example, would not have changed one whit what happened in sandy hook. it is a peculiar time. there seems to be a sense of entitlement on the part of many americans that somehow they don't have to be responsible for themselves and that they have no obligation to protect themselves , families, communities in the face of these horrific threats. >> i think it's very unfortunate that the federal government's and several states are many states following the lead, we are doing things that are nonsensical. the deprive us of autonomy and thinking. my son at logan airport, 11, is not have to take tough issues anymore to go through security. at it as my mom who is just shy of 80. i do. i'm not sure that makes any sense. i also know with all of

spoke oquentthe election. the hispanic community voted 70% minds on the republican side that immigration was a issue that the time has come. that is what we will have a bill because 70% hispanics voted democratic. it is that they had a clearer from howthe fog faded important this issue was to the people in our country. i feel confident about how we go forward on immigration. i commend the eight senators for the work they did. of course it is a compromise. when i change things? of course, but i think that is i think a compromise is about. i am calling them gangs of eight -- the bipartisan team in the house, the have been working on this issue for an long time, and their proposals are very much like what is in the senate. we're pretty happy about the place is. do not get me wrong, it is not a bill i would have written or something that all our members are quick to embrace, because again, it is a compromise. as a compromise, it is the boldest, denominator, the best we can do, and it is very good. again my members will have their concerns about it and their complaints about it because it is
them. they think in the general election 4% of the people care most about this issue, even though 91% of the country disagrees with us, we might not pay a political price for it whereas we know the lobby--the gun lobby will make us pay a price for it. isn't that what is wrong with our structurally with the current democracy. >> of course that's what is wrong with it. weakening that lobby is a very important part of it. but also changing the rules of the senate is a part of it that has to meet that weakening halfway. and when you have these senators who are afraid to vote for something because of the grade they're going to get. max baucus when he said why he didn't vote for it, one word, montana. the nra and the crazy support of max baucus. i'm not going to say it's crazy to support max baucus because they got what they wanted but they're so supportive with money you understand why the senators vote in that way. you have to change the structure of the filibuster. noah is right with four democratic senators they only would have gotten to 59 but they shouldn't have to get past 59. they

their re-election and legacies and sort of, you know -- their favorables at home -- we felt this would have done it but apparently not. >> if public opinion doesn't move it, what do you think the other levers are that affect senators' votes on these things and are those things movable? >> yeah, i think just the general outrage that we're seeing today and i think that's not going to go away. i think there's really two things at play. most people, you know, your segment there, they think that this is reasonable. when they think about a background check before buying a gun that is not extreme, it doesn't threaten your second amendment rights, and for most people, it seems like a pretty common sense thing to do. so i think there is some anger over there. but on top of that, it's the general disregard for the will of the people that happened yesterday that is actually sort of rare. most of the issues debated in our public policy sphere are more closely contested. and this really wasn't. there was nothing complicated or difficult about yesterday's vote but yet they couldn't do it. >> americans fo

this is the first round of a fight. i think the next obvious round is the 2014 election. and chuck will back me up on this. the problem there is there are 14 republicans up in 2014, andrea, one of them, susan collins, sits in the state that president obama won in 2012. and susan collins voted for cloture, that is to begin the debate and she voted for the manchin-toomey amendment. so of the issues are from mark pryor, mark begich. these are people that are democrats. i can't imagine president obama going after his own to prove his point on background checks organs. i could be wrong. >> heidi heitkamp is not up. >> not until 2018. >> i've heard this from other democratic strategist who is are working on house and senate races. the president actually was articulating the message that democrats are trying to come up with. sort of justifying how they, which is the idea of trying to isolate the republicans and say hey, the republicans in congress are not on your side. so you heard the president say, 90% of democrats were with the 90%, 90% of republicans were not so trying to paint republicans as out of
are disappointed and if they don't act this time, you will remember come election time. and i see this as just round one. >> joining us now, joy reid, managing editor for the grio.com. joy, thanks for joining any. >> thank withdryou. >> harry reid pulled the bill from consideration. news accounts are casting this as a loss for president obama, making it personal. i don't think the president was about making this personal. >> yeah, i mean, you can see from his reaction, right, when he did that news conference, after the bill went down, that he's angry. he is personally angry about this. you can also see that it's because the newtown shooting, the massacre at sandy hook, affected him in a way that was so deeply personal as a dad. you can see he's reacting just as a father. he is livid. if you leave the reports, he's particularly angry about those democrats who jumped ship on him, the four democrats who vote against the bill. personalizing it and claiming this is a loss for obama is a way of reframing this debate as your typical barack obama puts himself above the interests of whatever. it's all
to do. >> well, to me the stock market is the voting machine and the voting machine says you've been re-elected. that's indra nooyi, chairman and ceo of pepsico. thank you so much. great to meet you on "mad money." thank you. revolutionizing an industry can be a tough act to follow, but at xerox we've embraced a new role. working behind scenes for over 11 million employees. reducing document costs by up to 30%... and processing $421 billion dollars in accounts payables each year. helping thousands of companies simplify how work gets done. how's that for an encore? with xerox, you're ready for real business. how's that for an encore? but i wondered what a customer thought? describe the first time you met. you brought the flex in... as soon as i met fiona and i was describing the problem we were having with our rear brakes, she immediately triaged the situation, knew exactly what was wrong with it, the car was diagnosed properly, it was fixed correctly i have confidence knowing that if i take to ford it's going to be done correctly with the right parts and the right people. get a free brake inspe
had max baucus democratic senator in swing state up for ere-election why did you vote no one word montana. some of these democrats on the fence people like you have got on the screen right now, they basically say, back home in montana, it's not going to fly. and so right now the president is stuck because he has got a wall of republican opposition but he has also got a handful of democrats. >> bill: is he not getting anywhere on anything. that's that. severing going to stay status quo. on the terrorism front when mr. obama delivers a speech in boston today. that speech is written for him, correct? >> it is. his aides say on air force one as he always does, he starts tinkering with it and tries to get it in his own voice. i think you heard in an important clip there where he got the audience behind him. look, any president's situation like this can rise to the occasion, it's not shocking that when there is something like this he is going to get public support for it but not every president can sort of hit that high note. i think today as you noted he sort of captured the moment. bu

"mad money" is back on campus next week, thursday, april 25th, and i need to hear from you, nova! shoot a tweet to our team, @madmoney and show us how you're getting ready for the show. we want your pics, your videos, whatever you've got, and you might have the opportunity to be on the lightning round. in fact, i think we already have one from @nicky, nova's woman's track and field is so excited for "mad money"
and the calculations. max baucus is making a calculation, he's up for re-election, he's in a red state. >> sure that goes in to play. but you had a lot of -- you also had mccain, collins and toomey. and we're listening to the american public. nine out of ten people want this to happen. so they voted against -- >> you sound so idealistic now but you have written such a cynical piece of work. the point is, and from -- i've seen this in your work both in the ieds of march. it is not the way that democracy actually works on capitol hill is not some sort of simple cause and effect mechanism between the will of the people, and the things legislators do. >> absolutely not. our show takes a dark look at politics. we are showing an extreme view of how politics can work at its best and worst. underwood is not bound by ideology. in a way he's able to achieve progress because of that. >> what is interesting is that to me when i moved to washington and started to cover capitol hill is how surprising it was to me, how common that was. right? i expected everyone to be like true believers on both sides and it
in the nation. by the way, christie's move is a reminder he's still running for re-election, not for 2016 yet. >>> as we wait for formal charges to be brought against the 19-year-old marathon bombing suspect federal and state authorities are trying to determine what led up to last monday's attack and what red flags might have been missed. for more on that joined by nbc's national investigative correspondent michael isikoff. it seems to me the unanswered question everybody would like to know of, number one, where did these guys test? nobody believes this was the first time they did these bombs on monday. that they must have tested them somewhere. the second, what was tamerlan, the older brother, doing in russia for six months? >> reporter: exactly. there's so many unanswered questions here. but let's start with the -- that russian report to the fbi in 2011 asking them to investigate tamerlan. what sparked that -- the russian request? what information do they have? the fbi says that the russians didn't provide any backup. you look at their statement. they said they asked them to investigate him
elected to congress. first i'm sure you've heard the news that dzhokhar tsarnaev has been charged with using weapons of mass destruction in the boston marathon attacks. we're reading through the charges. learning more about what the fbi seized from his room. they described a large pyrotechnic, a black jacket and white cap. the big concern in addition to his brother's ties to any other outside groups, if there are any, is the question about the fbi. that the fbi questioned tamerlan tsarnaev and said that he was not a threat at the time. do you have any concerns with that information? >> well, you know, it is too early for me to second-guess the fbi. i think we need to know more about what they knew. the fact of the matter is that it is good that they contacted him. that wasn't enough to deter him, obviously. but the fact is that before i'm going to say the fbi should have done something different, what i, i'm not prepared to say that yet. there is just not enough information. what i will say is this. we don't know what their motivation was yet. those facts may come clear. there is

it or were they afraid of losing re-election? >> you know, i think that there is something in between and that is representing the people of your state. unfortunately in many, many states, the more rural states, some of the gun organizations have made people afraid of any gun legislation as they claim each one will lead to the taking away of your gun. it so happens the background checks would not affect law-abiding gun owners. i believe in the second amendment. i think there is a right to bear arms and i don't think liberals are right when they say it only applies to malicious, and i was saying that before the heller amendment. on the other hand, this bill only affects people who are felons, who are adjudicated mentally ill, who are spousal abusers. if you're a law-abiding gun owner this isn't going to interfere with your rights but some of these gun organizations, the nra in particular, they can't win on the merits of the arguments so they scare people and that's what they've done here. having said that, if you represent one of these rural states they think if you vouch for this it i
